Pet Portraits

This Christmas I had the opportunity to do a painting of "Gus" for his owner. The painting was commissioned by the owner's wife.

My favorite way to start a commission is to meet the subject, whether it's a person or an animal. I frequently go to meet the pet, or have a visit to my studio. I was unable to meet Gus, but was able to meet with Gus's owner's wife. She provided a photograph I was able to work from.

Gus's owner received the painting for Christmas. He wrote to me, "You have done a terrific job of capturing his soul and spirit. Now Gus is immortal!"

Pet portraits make loving and memorable gifts. Call or email to set up an appointment to discuss your portrait!
